March is Music in Our Schools Month

Music in Our Schools Month

March has been officially designated by the National Association for Music Education for the observance of Music In Our Schools Month, the time of year when music education becomes a focus in schools. Across Wake County, teachers lead students in discovering the joy of singing, playing instruments and performing. In this video, we visit elementary and high school music classrooms to hear from students about their love of music.

Discover numerous resources to use in class this month on the Verizon Thinkfinity.org web site.  One of the lesson plans from ArtsEdge takes a look at putting poetry to music.  The lesson is designed for students grades 5-8 and suggests using nursery rhymes.  Consider using FCIT’s Lit2Go to access a collection of nursery rhymes for this lesson.
